Have It All Wallet
After seeing this lovely wallet back in January, I determined that I definitely needed one of those too. The pattern is only one of several fun projects offered by the cheeky Straight Stitch Society, but this is definitely my favorite.
The Tsuru flowers on the exterior are a favorite of mine as well as the Annie's Farm Stand print for the inside -- I'm only sad that the Lush print that I used for the zipper pocket is hidden as much as it is. I had planned to use a snap for the fastener, but the generic pliers and snap set that I purchased a few weeks ago turned out to be garbage. Velcro to the rescue!
For me, a wallet is all about space for my cards, which I use more than anything else. It's amazing how much room is built into this entire design -- I love the abundance of pockets! There's plenty of space in here for everything I need to carry with me, and it fits perfectly inside my Two Zip Hipster. Don't they look happy together?
Be sure to come back tomorrow for Giveaway Day!
